Josh Binney: From Max Sennett to Cab Calloway

by T. Dennis Reece

This biography traces Josh Binney’s unusual film and stage career, which ranged from praise for his direction in Boston of the play Pinocchio to imprisonment in Montana for movie investment fraud. Particular attention is paid to his work in the 1940s for All American News, one of the major independent producers of films for the Black market. Binney’s credits there led The Times

of London fifty years later to call him one of the “spiritual forefathers” of Spike Lee.
